Nashville, Tenn. – Nashville Electric Service (NES) is notifying customers about an emergency planned outage Thursday, June 28 in the Nolensville Road area. Power will be shut off from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. so that crews can repair equipment that was damaged in a recent storm. Approximately 480 residential and small business customers will be affected by the outage.
Storms caused one unit serving the Utopia Substation to fail. The entire area is now being served by only one unit. If the repairs were not made and that unit were to fail as well, the area would be without power for an extended period of time.
NES engineers have been notifying business owners in person and customers will receive a phone message regarding the outage.
